Its July already! Oh yes you got it right monsoon has hit in various parts of the world. This is the only season where we enjoy rain dance and morning drizzles with those cool bright color umbrellas.
But besides this, monsoon brings humidity, heat and dust which make your skin look oily and greasy. And dust to greasy skin is like a child to candy shop. These dust particles stick on to your face resulting in clogged pores which causes breakouts!
But worry not you beauties; we have a complete skin care regime for you.
Let’s begin with
It is very important for you to keep your skin clean. During monsoon it is preferable to wash your face with anti-bacterial face wash (Neem, Turmeric, Lemon, Honey, etc.) at least 2-3 times a day to keep your skin free from bacteria.
(Do not exceed number of washes it may result in making your skin produce more oil)
In monsoon our skin develops a thick layer of oil and dead cells and in order to remove dead cells exfoliation is very essential. You can do this twice or thrice a week to keep your skin soft and supple.
After exfoliation tone those pores with non-alcoholic toners as they are very important in maintaining pH balance of the skin.
Sun – Screens
No matter how cloudy or windy it is outside it is essential to apply sun screens as UV rays may harm your skin. In monsoon it is advisable to apply non sticky matte sun screens. Preferably opt for SPF 30 to 50.
Moisturizers/ Day creams
Be it oily or dry skin moisturizers are necessary and one must never skip doing this. If your skin is left parched it produces more oil and make your skin look like a oil factory.
Last but not the least, it is important to apply night cream as night is the only time of your day when your body is at complete rest and experiences maximum relaxation with good blood circulation which helps in repairing your skin. So it is advisable to clean your face properly and apply night cream to keep your skin moisturized during night also.
Some Quick Points To Keep In Mind:
- Do not touch your face frequently. This may transfer bacteria from your hands on to your face which results in breakouts.
- Stay hydrated because we sweat a lot during monsoon too. Drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day.
- Use less make up or use only matte or mineral make up.
- Stick to home remedies or organic products only.
- In case you use foundation, switch on to matte foundations as the texture is non greasy and it gets absorbed into the epidermis of the skin completely.
- Keep your feet clean to stay away from fungal infections.
- Use anti-bacterial and anti-fungal talcum for underarms.
- Skip wearing artificial jewelries they may react to your skin, instead switch on to gold and silver jewelry pieces.
- Avoid Junk Food as they produce more oil on skin.
